Happy new year 2018, the show was great, and the fireworks... amazing. Atmosphere was, despite a large amount of people, nice and cosy, and service was exellent. Food was cold or too dry, but still ok. Good place to have a party....

Hopefully the restaurant will respond to you directly. Most often special entertainment is freely available if you 'Google' the restaurant, otherwise their regular entertainment is always good - get up and boogie!
